Questions & Answers

Q: How concerned are you about the High Court ruling being overturned on appeal?

I'm not concerned at all because the case is straightforward, and we believe that only Parliament can grant or take away rights. The 11 Supreme Court judges are unlikely to overturn the three judges' ruling.

Q: What will happen if the ruling is overturned?

We will leave it at this stage, and the government will have to deal with triggering Article 50. However, triggering Article 50 without parliamentary intervention may lead to future legal cases.

Q: How long do you expect Brexit negotiations to last?

The negotiations could go on for years, not just due to what's happening in the UK but also because of referenda and elections in other European countries. The domestic priorities of other member states may delay our exit.

Q: Do you believe Brexit will be damaging for the UK?

Yes, as time goes on, the British public will realize that Brexit will be very damaging for us. There may be different scenarios, such as a soft or hard Brexit, but brexit may not happen at all.
